Padres letting season slip away, lose 3 of 4 to Giants

The much hyped match up between Lincecum and Mat Latos didn't live up to the billing.  Latos had his second worst start of the season and as a result the Padres were never in the game. 

The Padres offense can share in the blame as they continue to swing ice cold bats.  This team over the past few weeks remind me of the Padres of the last two seasons, they make it look impossible to score.  I don't think they even believe they can score at this point.  In the last 4 games they were only able to score 5 runs total.

The Padres better start winning tomorrow or their chances of making the playoffs could be next to nothing by the end of the week. The Giants and Rockies are playing their best baseball of the year and the Padres look awful.  It's frustrating for all of those involved.

Well maybe not Bud Black. I'm listening to him right now on the Post Game Show talk about how excited they are to be in first place in this great NL West race. The problem is that this is a marathon and our rivals have already started their kick going into the last two miles and we hit the wall at mile 20.  Better suck down some Gu and pick up the pace.

Snap out of this funk Padres! 20 games left, it's now or never.
